Something changed, and now the HNQ list in the sidebar is a bulleted list:

This looks a little awkward to me, since the site icons already do the job of a bullet. I don't see this happening on any other site, either (it's only Academia and Meta Academia).

Is this a bug?

  • I see it also. Am asking around.

  • It appears to be specific to Academia. Other sites are not showing this.

  • @Hosea I asked the SE team to look at it. I will try and follow up again in a couple of more days. The SE team periodically checks on questions tagged bug

Thanks for reporting. There was some weird custom styling for UL and OL elements in sidebar. Should be with next build (in couple hours probably).
